The association between endometriosis, adenomyosis and preterm delivery

Endometriosis and adenomyosis are diseases of the same spectrum which have common features and coexist in some but not all patients. Both diseases are characterized by endometrial implants outside of the uterine cavity. Endometriosis is defined as the localization of endometrium outside the uterus, whereas adenomyosis is recognized by in-growth of the endometrium into the myometrium. The spectrum of symptoms includes dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, dyspareunia, and infertility. Bruun and Arendt et al, a group of scientists from Aarhus University…

The comparison of Chinese women in terms of risk factors, genetics and treatment of endometriosis

Endometriosis is characterized by endometrial implants outside of the uterine cavity. There is a wide spectrum of symptoms of this disease including dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, dyspareunia, extragenital symptoms. The pathogenesis of endometriosis appears to be multifactorial, including ectopic endometrial tissue, altered immunity, imbalanced cell proliferation and apoptosis, aberrant hormonal signaling, and genetic factors. Dai et al, a group of scientists from Peking Union Medical College Hospital in China, published a review titled as “A review of the risk factors,…

Patient-centered endometriosis care

Endometriosis is defined as endometrial glands and stroma that exist outside the uterine cavity. Ectopic endometrial tissue and resultant inflammation can cause dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, chronic pain, and infertility, all of which reduce the quality of life. The aim of the management is generally to achieve pain relief which usually is not satisfactory for most patients and unfortunately, the recurrence rate can be as high as 40-50%. However, the goal of the treatment should be to increase the quality of life…

Stenoses in the colorectal anastomose sites after DIE surgery

Deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) is a particular form of endometriosis that penetrates at least 5 mm under the peritoneal surface. DIE is primarily located in the rectosigmoid junction and the rectum with an incidence of 70% and 90%, respectively. The most preferred treatment modality for DIE is laparoscopic resection of colorectal endometriotic nodules. Following this procedure, anastomotic stenosis is a well-recognized complication.  Bertocchi et al, a group of scientists from Sacred-Heart- Don Calabria Hospital in Italy, published an article titled…
